Since the issue of licenses has come up again, I'd like to ask a question
about the license requirements. The third listed item is,

"Must require that the license appear on all copies of the software
source code."

Is this a misprint? Should "must" be "may"? As it stands, this implies
that Boost library submissions will be rejected if they are simply placed
into the public domain, wholly unrestricted. I can't think of any good
reason for such a policy.
